James Johnson’s Throwback Dunk

My love of James Johnson highlights has not been a secret.  After filling up the video tape reel (and the box score) in Memphis last year he has brought his talents to Toronto.

In the Raptors win over the Pistons last night Johnson threw one down on Andre Drummond.  I couldn’t resist adding this to JJ’s budding archive resembling David Thompson & Dominique Wilkins.



10-Day NBA Contract Watch: D.J. Stephens

Former Memphis Tigers guard D.J. Stephens is playing in Greece this season.  Video evidence shows Stephens as a high-flyer ala Dominique Wilkins.

At 6’5″ Stephens led Conference-USA in blocks during the 2013 season. He blocked 6 shots in a game twice despite playing fewer than 30 minutes in each contest.  At 7 rebounds/game the guard also led Memphis in rebounding by two per game.  The team’s 6’9″ combo inside players Shaq Goodwin and Tarik Black each averaged just below 5 rebounds/night.

To recap, at 6’5″ D.J. Stephens averaged 10 rebounds and 4 blocks/36 minutes played his senior year at Memphis.

Stephens seems like a great 10-day contract pickup in the NBA.  We may be looking at a future Clarence Weatherspoon or Terry Tyler type player.  If anyone has an update from Greece please share.  We need more D.J. Stephens…
